Our debut album, Eat Their Weight in Snakes was named one of the top albums of 2011 from Vermont artists by Seven Days!
…the Vermont music community should be excited about a band like the Concrete Rivals emerging from Montpelier. The production on their debut is great and has a timeless feel..
…Eat Their Weight in Snakes is an intelligently composed instrumental record.
Justin Crowther – Seven Days
…The music on this CD is hard-driving, fast-paced, tightly played, raucous, at times complex and at others simply bold. Most tunes have some wonderfully well-placed pauses in the action that act like a break in a thriller, to let the audience catch their breath…

Absolutely would love to have your band back. I’m a huge fan, TOTAL PRO ACT.
Rich Varney – Rotten Productions
The Rivals are perhaps the hottest local thing in the city of the Golden Dome right now; their “surf, spy, and sagebrush” sound has evolved to incorporate elements of metal, prog-rock and even outlaw country. The result is as impressive a rock ‘n’ roll band as I’ve seen come out of Montpelier.
